Each ring of the hammer

The nails were all numbered and driven in place They scorned and they mocked Him and spat in His face But while all the misery and pain He went thru He begged,"Father forgive them, they know not what they do" Each ring of the hammer is counting a sin Each nail in the cross is one you drove in Just turn from your lost world of sinning today And each ring of the hammer will soon fade away They gathered around Him and watched as He died They crowned Him with thorns and nails in His side Out over Calvary that cruel hammer rang As each nail was driven the cold metal sang * Refrain He came here to save us from living in sin The we repaid Him with nails hammered in Can you not see Him, that look on His face He's begging us all just to water His grave * Refrain
